Workers of Bihar’s Bihar Teachers Pension and Private Pension Workers strike over pension
A team of workers of Bihar Teachers Union Pension and Workers Union Pension have decided to go on strike over the issue of their pensions.
They will not allow their employers to withhold wages and salaries.
“Our pensioners are struggling to make ends meet.
There is a real danger of a strike in the state of Bihar.
This is why we are striking,” said Prakash Chaudhary, a leader of the strike.
The strike has been going on for two days now.
The union has not been able to reach an agreement on the payment of wages to its members.
According to a government report, the pensioners have not been paid for two months.
It said the state government had promised the workers their pension in February last year, but that they were not to receive it until the end of this year.
The workers of the Bihar Teachers’ Union Pension in Haryana also have been demanding an annual pension from the state.
But they too are yet to receive any of their dues.
The strike has affected several districts in the State, including Bihar, Goa, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
The workers of these districts have been protesting for their pension for over two years.
The pension is also due to be paid on November 20, but the strike has left many people unemployed.
